Have you ever looked forward to something so much, that when you finally get it, and it's not everything you dreamed, you're pissed?

That's me right now.

I just got my hands on a copy of the new Doctor Who OST. I'm uber excited, because I've been itching for Song For Ten. Granted, it's sung by Neil Hannon on the album, who I'm not not fond of. He opened for Ben Folds once, and he wasn't great. But still! I wanted the song badly!

So I get it, and open Song for Ten...

And it's done up like a cheesed out vegas show number, with Hannon warbling along with the lyrics.

UGHHHGGGGHHHH!!!

Dammit! Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!!

Because god forbid they should give fans the original Tim Phillips recording, which is done like a Phil Spector 60's pop tune. Wonderfully done like that. Sure, it's not without it's ammount of cheese, but it's Good! You can smile to it and bop your head to it! Hannon's voice is PAINFUL. Not only that, but the whole thing is over produced. Full string section, horns, and crazy female back up singers.

The original had bells, piano, and bass, drums, and not much else, plus just one guy, who did his own back up vocals. The style is a little beach boys, a little 60's brit pop. It was so simple, and so beautiful. And now it's trashed.

It sucks ass the the original version can't be found without the episode background noise. In fact, it can't even be found in its original entirity.

If anyone does, by chance have a copy of it...send it my way? Please?
